GNOME introduces few changes this week, but "quality"

This week in GNOME

Yesterday afternoon on the Iberian Peninsula, GNOME published the note with the news that occurred from April 19 to 26. It is not very extensive, to the point that they have had to title it "Quality over quantity." It is likely that the weak week had to do with the last point discussed, which talks about the fact that these days there has been movement in the sectors of finance, strategy, financing and plans to increase diversity and inclusion.

In total, it seems like a week of transition in which we have only been told about three new features, one of them being GTK 4.15. In order not to lengthen an article that does not have to be long, let's go with the News list This week.

This week in GNOME

  • GTK 4.15 has arrived:
    • This version changes the default GSK renderer to Vulkan, in Wayland. Other platforms still use ngl. The intent of this change is to get more extensive testing and verify that the Vulkan drivers are good enough for us to trust. If significant problems appear, the changes for 4.16 will be reverted.
    • This release also changes the font rendering settings by introducing a new high-level gtk-font-rendering setting that gives GTK more freedom to decide on font rendering.
  • New version of Hieroglyphic with new application icon, refined interface and improved symbol recognition speed.


  • Graphs 1.8:
    • Graphs is now fully compatible with touch screen devices.
    • Equation management has been improved.
    • Added support for additional trigonometric functions and their inverses, such as sinh and cosh. Now the vast majority of trigonometric functions should work without problems.
    • Help has been ported to Yelp, and can now be accessed directly from the app.
    • There is now a warning when editing a style with low contrast between labels and background colors.
    • Numeric entries in the application now indicate when invalid data is entered.
    • Several bugs have been fixed, especially regarding the handling of equations in the curve fitting dialog.
    • Many different improvements have been added to the translation process, such as more translatable strings and added context to strings.

And this has been all this week in GNOME.
